Drunk driving is one of the most unacceptable, yet overlooked, behaviors in the modern era. NDOT reports that there have been a total of 5 alcohol related traffic fatalities since February 26, 2016. In an effort to reduce the number of alcohol related fatalities and injuries on Nevada’s roads, RTC Washoe will offer free transit service on Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17th, from 4pm to midnight on all regularly scheduled transit services through the FREE Safe Ride Program. Additionally, the downtown circulator bus, SIERRA SPIRIT, will have extended hours. This is the 13th year of the FREE Safe Ride Program and Traffic Works is proud to be a sponsor of this great event. The program encourages safe driving and reminds the public to never drive impaired.
